Manhattan Nest.is a blog written by Daniel & Eva who are sophomores at NYU that recently moved into their first apartment together. After reading today's post I was hooked. I settled in with a cup of tea and started at the beginning.
The majority of the posts have been written by Daniel (Eva was home for summer) and showcase some amazing and budget friendly projects that he tackled to turn their apartment into a home.
Check out his bedroom:
That stunning bed originally looked like this:
Only $49.99 and with some imagination, batting, mdf, staple gun, fabric and these steps you now see the finished product in his room.
His desk area is another stunner.
Check out the before:
After a trip to Ikea for some legs and knobs and a trip to Home Depot for some MDF & painting supplies he now has this:
Let's move along to kitchen where you can check out how some accessories, lighting swap, paint job and a duvet turned window treatment can brighten up a space.
Their bathroom also needs a little time in the spotlight.
Check out their bathroom vanity before:
After: No that's not a new piece. It's just gotten a little TLC +wood+paint.
He also gave the walls a fresh coat of paint, which made me love my own black bathroom walls even more:
I can't wait to see what Daniel & Eva do next. If this is what they are doing as college sophomore's I can't wait to see what they accomplish next. Guys if you read this post we must get together and grab lunch one day so I can pick your brains and see that apt in person!
